Win7 Restore error 0x800700bf: Fix a non-bootable drive.
Posted on 2012-03-19
I have a system running win 7 32bit. I changed the hard drive to use the box for another purpose. When I put the drive back in and tried to boot, it takes me into the recovery console. I tried to do a recovery but it didn't work. I tried a restore from an earlier time and receive an unspecified error of 0x800700bf. I can use the recovery console command prompt and see the c: drive and get things off of it.
What does the error indicate?
Is there a way to get this system back up running without loosing everything (data and programs)?
Does win 7 (I believe business ver) have a way to re-install the OS while retaining everything else? (I can do it with XP most of the time)
